Know Your Tracks

Many here have probably seen this site, but for those that have not, it is fun to peruse from time to time. Many of the runners over on the War Horse thread call some of these off the wall - bull ring affairs - home. I think Mylute mentioned that she had never heard of Rillito, and boom, here it is ...

Re: what tracks will be open after Sunday?

Kind of a day to day deal at this point. Oaklawn stays running unless they are forced to stop, Gulfstream and Tampa Bay are feeling pressure. Out west, Golden Gate, Los Alamitos, Fonner, Will Rogers Downs and Remington (QH meet) are all scheduled to run - for now. The last 3 are a bit off the beaten...

Sorry to hear this news. Had a chance to see him a couple of times in the summer of 2008 at Monmouth. Decent horse.

RIP Honest Man. A long way from home.

Some nice words about A.P. Indy, and a wonderful picture of Asa Haley and his boy. A.P. looks like a woolly mammoth.

Re: 2020 Older Horses

Noble Indy, the 2018 Derby prospect for Mike Repole, achieved one of his rare wins today in an AOC race at Gulfstream. He's been trying to unload him (ran today for a 75K tag, and prior to this back in November for 100K), but still no takers.

Re: What Race Got You Into This?

My introduction goes all the way back to mid-century past. As a young boy, visiting with my maternal grandmother in Houston on a sultry afternoon in 1965, she asked if I might like to bet on who would win the Kentucky Derby on that day in May. Dug into my pocket and pulled out the only 5 cents I had...

Re: Rebel Stakes Saturday @ Oaklawn

97 BSF for Nadal. Wow, that race completely fell apart behind the top two. Were none of them as good as we thought, or do they all get another chance on a fast track? Also, I only got the chance to watch the one race today- was the rail good? That huge longshot runnerup rode it all the way around, ...

Re: Maximum Security's stud fee

Clip him and send him to join Point Given, Da Hoss, Funny Cide, and Go for Gin at the Kentucky Horse Park. Maybe he'll make for a good public attraction. Nobody on the breeding end needs his business. Time to end the story. That would be kindest and most sensible decision, so it probably won't happ...

Don't know if he's fast enough to beat some of the horses in this race, but I'm keeping an eye on Silver Prospector here. Been in the money for all but one race, and in all kinds of track conditions.

For as many fans as he has around here, myself included, I'm surprised nobody mentioned good old Whitmore winning the Hot Springs Stakes at Oaklawn yesterday. About as hard trying as they come.
